Sunday on the Plaza

After we took our bicycle ride and had breakfast, Meredith, Chuck, Alejandro and I headed to the main plaza of Mérida.


On Sundays the plaza is transformed into a handicrafts market.  There is a double row of vendors' stalls around the entire perimeter of the square.


Hand made dolls and stuffed animals



Wooden masks



Lots of embroidered clothing



Landscape paintings of typical scenes from Yucatán


In front of the city hall there is entertainment all afternoon.


There are clowns and puppet shows for the children.

The "Ballet Folklórico Juvenil" (the young people's folklore ballet troupe) performed dances of Yucatán.





Sunday is always colorful and lively in Mérida.
